March 13, 2018 – Wolters Kluwer Health announced today the launch of IJS Global Health, an open access journal published in partnership with the IJS Publishing Group. The peer-reviewed, international journal will publish research in the broad field of global health and surgery.
IJS Global Health seeks to publish high quality content in the field of global health and global surgery. Its scope includes safe access, capacity and sustainability of surgical, obstetric and anaesthetic services; trauma; infectious diseases; cancer; pregnancy related complications; congenital anomalies; nutrition; disease surveillance; implementation science; disasters and emergencies.
“We are proud to launch IJS Global Health, which follows IJS Oncology,” said R. David Rosin, Editor-in-Chief. “With the increasing movement of vast numbers of people between continents possibly bringing with them diseases not previously seen in the host country and the increasing problem of natural disaster, a focus on global health and how it can be bolstered it is vital.”
He continued, “The added problem of man-made disasters that stem from wars adds to many across the globe starving, whilst in other countries chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes and hypertension are increasing. An international journal that puts global health into perspective is long overdue. We feel certain that it will prove to be beneficial to all in health care.”
IJS Global Health joins IJS Oncology in the Lippincott portfolio. While IJS Short Reports is in the Medknow portfolio. Both are published in partnership with the IJS Publishing Group.
“IJS Publishing Group is proud to welcome the addition of IJS Global Health in partnership with Wolters Kluwer Health to its growing portfolio of leading journals” said Dr. Riaz Agha, Chairman and Chief Executive, IJS Publishing Group. “The journal’s mission and scope fits well with both organisations, and we are excited to see how the journal will develop in the coming years and bring more focus to global health issues.”
